Connecting an OEM screen to HDMI? Answered

If I get an OEM screen or take one out of a device, (nintendo DS,Digital camera,smartphone, etc.) is there a way to give it HDMI input?

This gets asked almost daily/weekly.

No. The proprietary connector on each of the above mentioned displays requires a specific drive circuit for that particular screen - there is no 'plug and play' compatible converters that take hdmi and output to a raw lcd.

You could do it yourself, but you would need years of electronics engineering, software engineering, and a full lab/big budget.

Can it be done? Technically yes, but its not worth it for anyone to do (per the cost) so it doesn't get done.
